vlan: Precise RX stats accounting
With multi queue devices, its possible that several cpus call vlan RX routines simultaneously for the same vlan device. We update RX stats counter without any locking, so we can get slightly wrong counters. One possible fix is to use percpu counters, to get precise accounting and also get guarantee of no cache line ping pongs between cpus. Note: this adds 16 bytes (32 bytes on 64bit arches) of percpu data per vlan device. Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
